Reading Fictional Books about Minecraft

Diary Of A Crash-Landing Space Traveler Book 2: Taming A Wolf, An Unofficial Minecraft Book (Minecraft Inspired Adventure Series)Did you know there are fictional books about Minecraft? Yes! I’m not talking about book on how to do better about Minecraft, which is a HUGE trend right now. No, I’m talking about taking the story of Minecraft and putting it into a fictional plot, with characters who do the activities players doΒ in the game. Cool idea!

I just read book two of a series about Minecraft and wanted to share it here. I also read book one and enjoyed it. Here is my Goodreads review and you can also connect with me on Goodreads by clicking the bottom link.

What are you reading right now?

Diary Of A Crash-Landing Space Traveler Book 2: Taming A Wolf, An Unofficial Minecraft Book by Team Minecrafters

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the second book in the series and I enjoyed it! I understand the series is for kids and would recommend it for mid-to-late elementary school students.

In book two, Storm is still trying to navigate the new world and find the materials he needs to fix his spaceship. As with the first book, there are many clever references to the Minecraft game, including creepers and skeletons. I like how mining and other activities from the game are brought to life here.

For any kid who loves the world of Minecraft, here is a new way to enjoy the adventures in a fictional book. Oh, and the new character of Comet does not disappoint either!

    Minecraft has passed me by, but I know it’s a huge thing, so it’s no surprise it’s spawned stories of its own! I’m reading my first ever Neil Gaiman book ‘The Ocean at the End of the Lane’, which I’m really enjoying.

    Hi Christy… always enjoy your reviews. Minecraft is certainly a game for kids, I see them playing with their devices and they know all the characters. Interesting someone has written of the game. Thanks for the review, wakes up the inner child in me… hugs

      Hi Rolly, yes, and there are actually many fictional books there based on the game now, as I found out while reading this series. I love where the imagination took this particular author so I wanted to review the book 2 πŸ™‚ Thanks for taking time here!

    Christy, I’m sure, if I was to ask the Grandchildren they would enlighten me! One is constantly head down, fingers tapping! I’ll mention the book; you never know what is going to appeal. πŸ™‚

      Hi Carolyn, there is so much to learn out there, isn’t there?! I think that’s one of the best things about reading. Yes, I have a feeling your grandkids will know about Minecraft and will think you’re very cool for knowing about it now too πŸ™‚

    Although I love your reviews doubt that I will read this😊 I have just given a book on goodreads one star. A book called Plague by Victor Methos. It seems to me that he was making up the plot as he was writing the story so that it ended a great big rubbish plot.

      One of the things I most adore about you is your honesty πŸ™‚ I believe what the author of that one-star book you just read was doing was “writing by the seat of his pants”! I wonder, were there any 5- or 4-star reviews on Goodreads for the book?

          Oh yes, I know… Reviews can be challenging for all of us for some books, depending on our experiences with it.. I hope you have a nice day with some reading fit in πŸ™‚

          Especially the mood we are,as you say, as some books are not simply for reading but for studying.Learning is a lifelong procedure and we can gain a lot from any genre that suits us.Poetry,for instance,has so many aspects,so many beautiful elements.Hugs back to you πŸ™‚

    I do enjoy your book reviews, especially this one about a book for ‘young people’ – something that has nothing to do with age. Here’s a quote that I think you’ll enjoy. “You have to write the book that wants to be written. And if the book will be too difficult for grown-ups, then you write it for children.” Madeleine L’Engle.

    I have read Madeleine L’Engle’s “A Wrinkle in Time” several times over the years since I first read it when I was 9 years old. Always a joy to stop by…

    I’m partial to a dabble on Minecraft, it would be easy to make some horror books about all those caves, blimey the adventures we’ve all experienced! The books will I’m sure lead to the longevity of the game.

      True about Minecraft being so popular, Jacqui! I like that it is helping kids with everything from math and science to language and creativity. I own the book series I linked to in this post and love it! Great to “see” you πŸ™‚
